Al-Ittihad goalkeeper Morris is exposed to an annoying laser beam in his eye at Anfield (and responds with a big wink to Klopp) | Belgian clubs in Europe

Anthony Morris (33 years old) was injured by the laser in Liverpool. A spectator pointed to a bright green light in the face of the Al-Ittihad goalkeeper at one point in the second half. Morris pointed the incident out to the referee, and now says – in a joking reference to Klopp: “Replay the game.”

At Anfield, someone brought a laser pointer onto the field. After the end of the first half, and with Diego Jota’s chance to head, the Al-Ittihad goalkeeper was the victim of the green light. Morris put his gloves over his eyes and pointed the laser at the referee. A day later, a clever, but perhaps in-joke, response followed on Twitter. “Replay this match,” Morris wrote under a photo in which a laser light was clearly visible.

A playful reference to previous words said by Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp. He calls for a replay of the Tottenham-Liverpool match because Luiz Diaz’s goal was wrongly disallowed last weekend. The English Referees’ Association (PGMOL) pointed to a painful misunderstanding between the on-field referee and the VAR system. Klopp said: “Nothing like this has ever happened before. I think a rematch is the only right thing to do.”

Liverpool and Union were not the only match in the Europa League yesterday in which they wanted to unnerve the players in this way. Ajax footballers also had to deal with the green laser when visiting AEK Athens. It seems that this disturbing phenomenon has disappeared in recent years.

You pay in cash

Morris also maintained an almost perfect matchup. He prevented Salah, Nunez and Jota from scoring with some excellent saves. So he looked unbeatable at Anfield. It seems that Alexander Arnold’s attempt was not able to change that. But the Al-Ittihad goalkeeper was unable to control the ball and Grafenbersh scored the rebound. “Technical error,” Morris admitted. “And I paid for it in cash. Well, that’s part of football. I’d rather make a mistake than one of my teammates.”

Alexander Pilsen did not blame his team’s goalkeeper. “I feel bad for Anthony,” the German said. “He played a really good game. He was the field slipperyWhich made it difficult to control the ball. But he showed a good reaction, kept his calm and played a great match in my opinion.”
